 The Criminal Injustice System
Choke

Proponents of authoritarianism within our society have created a system of so-called criminal justice that is itself criminal.  Frequently described with words like Byzantine and Kafkaesque, it is, broadly speaking, more a system of scapegoating than anything else.

No group has been harder hit by the scapegoating trend than man/boy lovers.  If ensnared in the system, we -- both men and boys -- are subject to a litany of injustices: forced “therapies,” long prison sentences, impossible terms for parole, lifetime registration and community notification, and for some, indefinite  confinement after their sentence has been served.

A man may be subjected to any or all of these things for so much as touching the leg of a teenaged boy, even if it was in response to the boy’s own request.  The boy’s intentions, actions, and experience of the event are not considered at all in determining the man’s fate.  This system needlessly destroys the lives of thousands of men and boys each year.
